Start of week three at The Irish Times

Into week three in the newsroom. I’m working on an interesting medical story, which will report the power of a vegetable. I’m still working on my two feature stories. I’ve quite a bit on together now, so it’s a case of spending time on each at the best – and most efficient – times.

I heard somebody today saying that “you’re only as fast as your slowest contact”; that’s very true and I did have to hang around for some call-backs today. I had plenty of interview notes to transcribe in the meantime though. (It seems obvious, but it’s a good idea to transcribe as soon as possible after taking scribbled scrawls – doh!)

I’m going to stick with my veggie med story until I crack it this evening.
